Perivale Gallery to feature works of painter Jay Favot

SPRING BAY—Perivale Gallery will be holding an opening reception this Saturday, August 11 for an exhibition and show for ‘Generations: The Art of Jay Favot.’

“Jay is a Sudbury-based artist whose star has been rapidly rising,” a press release from the gallery states. “Recently featured in a 16 page spread in the 2017 Spring/Summer edition of Arabella, Canada’s foremost art, design and architecture publication, as an ‘Artist to Collect,’ Jay has recently figured prominently in awards at well-known and respected art venues.”

“Jay was the recipient of the Peg Forbes Memorial Award, which is one of the top awards, at the 2016 La Cloche Art Show for his painting ‘The Crack,’ as well as being the 2016 winner of the People’s Choice Award at Perivale Gallery’s annual ‘In the Spirit of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven Show,’ for his painting, ‘Above Killarney.’

In 2017, Mr. Favot was presented with the Committee’s Choice Award at the La Cloche Art Show. Generations will feature the artist’s newest and as yet unseen works, and will continue to August 17, 2018.

Mr. Favot is driven to strive harder and better in his art every year. His inspirations have come from a variety of sources, including Ontario and Quebec landscapes and cityscapes, as well as taking a fresh view of the ordinary moments of life with both people and things. “To see somebody make that connection to your art is always great,” the artist says. “It has been a conscious effort to vary subjects and style of art over the years.”

Mr. Favot’s artwork can be found in many private collections in Canada and he is currently represented by Perivale Gallery.

Come and meet the artist and enjoy refreshments on August 11 from 1 to 5 pm, or visit the show any time between 10 am and 5 pm during the following week. Mr. Favot’s available works can be viewed at Perivale Gallery until September 16.

The images of the works to be featured in this exhibition will be uploaded to the gallery’s website by 7 am the morning of the opening, August 11. Doors open at 10 am. A reception begins at 1 pm. For more information or to purchase as of 7 am on August 11, please contact Shannon McMullan at 705210-0290.
